Chuch Goer - Poem by Adesitimi Taiwo Damilola

CHURCH GOER'
I've been to 'deeper-life
church'
I church with them because they show holiness
In both their
within and outward
appearance
Still I am a
born-again sinner Because I do the will of my flesh
The more I church, the
more I sin.
Who am I?
I'm a church goer!
Only God knows if I would getto
heaven!
Later, I went to
'Rccg' to warm its bench.
I can see clearly,
Within us, the faith is getting cold
I began to put on ear-
rings
oh! I neglect biblical-
patterns of way of
life'Ipeters3v3 '
I moved from wearing mini-skirts to wearing trousers
That is why, my man can't afford to buy a nicker
Because women've
bought our trousers
Going to heaven is
uncertain
Who am I?
I'm a church goer!
I went to prosperity church
Who preaches how to be richon earth
But ignore heaven!
There I join earthly-choir
I sing softly
with my lips
Also with uncovered hair-style and
in trousers
Singing without my consciencebeatîng
That I'm a fornicator!
Why do I wear trousers?
Yet I dance
before the innocent
worshippers!
I poet wailed!
Because some will
move from church to hell
I've moved round and
round from warm to cold
From living to non-living
church
-with no point to
hold
who am I?
I'm a church goer!
